    Hyatt, yes. I can give you a clue, if you'd like.

    Excellent. I love coming here. I'll visit Perth, again, and Adelaide on this visit. It takes a long time go get here, but it's worth the trip.

    P.S. You owe me a beer!

    Thanks for the images, was surprised to learn that this Hilton doesn't offer a lounge, I thought it's something of a standard to offer a lounge. Cheers. Safe travels.

    I was too. There are some Hiltons without lounges; for example, the Hilton on O'Farrell in San Francisco. This Hilton seems to be another one without a lounge. :-(

    Would be indeed very nice to see Executive Lounges as "brand standard" withing the Hilton main brand. Have a safe trip. Cheers.

    1435985993054.jpg I am now on Rottnest Island, where WiFi is free and good! Here's my taxi.

    Maybe Über should get involved. I'd love to take a U Boat.

    1435986351406.jpg I also had orange juice (featured). I learned from the cap that about 100 people die each year from choking on ball point pens. Interesting.

    20150704_134500.jpg Here's what all the fuss is about. The Dutch who landed on the island thought it was a rat. It's a small marsupial. They also thought being neutral in WWII was a good idea.

    Here is strange art found on a wall in Perth. I think I need to run back and photograph it again.

    1436070504606.jpg Chalkys in Fremantel, Western Australia. I was told a great story of Irish Fenians escaping to the US. I'll report back later.

    1436082064331.jpg Perth asked Britain for convicts to populate the area. They arrived before word was received that they were on the way. Dock-men put them temporarily in a warehouse. The bar/hotel on that site is now called the Bar and Chain.

    The QANTAS business lounge in Perth. You get to make your own, hot sandwiches.
